    Trailer Tire Wear

    Just got home from Mudbug and looked to see how my tires did.

    Can anyone explain what's going on? Trailer/tires are just over a year old.

    The bald on is on the side that the GPR is on and the other is where my SHO is.

    Thanks.

    Maybe the axle is flexing?

    For some reason (bent/flexing axle or overloaded axle) the toe in or possibly camber is out of spec. (alignment of the tires in relation to each other).

    Take a picture at ground level from the rear of the trailer about twenty to thirty feet back and look at tire position in relation to trailer-axle-wheels/tires. Should give a clue what is causing it.

    jack the trailer up and grab the top and bottom of the tire and try and wiggle it. if it wobbles back and forth at all, you need to adress the wheel bearings.

    It is over weight or your axle bent. I had a bent axle and it was eating tires like they were free. Must be from going threw all those Mc Donald drive threw. Just kidding. I think it was that or a curb how mine got jack up. Even with a new axle the little 12 inch tires on trailers turn so fast on long trip they start to burn up. 3000 miles and went threw 2 sets on a long trip. But your tires look like the better ones. Thats the second time i forgot to look at the date of the thread. Sorry

    This thread is a year old. My guess is those two yamalogs are too heavy for that axle or the bearings are loose .
